Ruby Road Ride

Let me give it a try.

Ride Name: Ruby Road Ride
Date: 2/7/10
Meeting time: 0700 Stands up at 0730
Meeting location: I19 & Continental (South side of Green Valley)
Estimated Length of Ride: 3 hours guesstimate
Difficulty: Depends on what the rains have done to it. Should be an easy to moderate difficulty. There is a side loop near the halfway point out Warsaw Canyon and back California gulch that should be a bit more difficult.
Notes: (ex: General route, big bike friendly; noob friendly; fast paced...)

Out to Arivaca south on Ruby road and up into the mountains. Either end up on I-19 just north of Nogales or we can turn around and come back the same way. The area is incredibly green right now. Potential for a couple of smaller water crossings. A couple of washouts along Ruby. There is probably some standing water in Calif Gulch.

Big bike friendly with a large Border Patrol presence to keep the bad guys away.

Any interest or better knowledge of the road conditions?

08/22/2010

Ride Name: Redington Road/Chiva area
Date: Sunday 08/22/10
Meeting time: 8:30AM (breakfast then ride)
Meeting location: Frank's Diner on Pima
Estimated Length of Ride: ? (depends on heat)
Difficulty: mid-easy, big bike (this might be an overstatement, but you can always go back) and noob friendly, no broken bones tour
Notes: Stock up on greasy spoon and then head to the land of guns and 4-wheelers (by-passing both). We will get in the dirt but nothing too tough (unlessen y'all want to). I am going to ride the new to me 640 Adventure just to test how adventurous it wants to be. Might go down to Castle Rock, who knows.
